It looks good to me too.
 
When I first spotted the title of this thread I thought it said "Vegans meat mallet!"  Why on earth would a vegan want a meat mallet I thought?
 
Ah well, senior moments I suppose.

If you are looking for commisions then contacting the Guild of Toastmasters may be productive. I understand from a friend that they are often having their little wooden hammers nicked.

Hi all
 
thanks very much!
baz/ralph, i used my router with a v-bit to cut the grooves. i took a leftover piece of mdf, made a hole the size of the mallett head, and hot glued it flush to the mdf. i marked out parallel lines spaced every 5mm, and used a straightedge as a guide. once done, i turned it 90 degrees and repeated. it is quite time consuming, i must find a better way to do it.
mark, i'm afraid to admit it, but i really don't know what wood it is. it is originally from very heavy crates, and the dark lines are due to oil stains. it is very hard and heavy.
 
cheers
vaughn
